Awards


WBSC deems opportune to recognise those people that contributed to the foundation of the World Baseball Softball Confederation, to its success and to the development of all potentialities of the merge of Baseball and Softball such creating a World Baseball/Softball Family.

The WBSC Order of Honour represents the supreme honour awarded to those persons who have acted in such a way as to illustrate the ideals of baseball/softball and their outstanding merits in favour of the development of our sport and who have rendered exceptional services to baseball/softball.

This distinction shall be awarded by the WBSC Executive Board and the WBSC Congress shall be notified accordingly.
